Isaac Stockton Taylor (1851-10/26/1917) Saint Louis MO (F.A.I.A.)

Well known architect in St. Louis, credited with the design of various public and business structures dating for the late nineteenth century. He was a native of Nashville, TN, studied architecture at St. Louis University, and at the age of seventeen entered the St. Louis office of George Ingrahm Barnett, a prominent practitioner in the city. Later, between 1874-1889, he practiced jointly with the elder architect.

Opening his own office in the city, Mr. Taylor engaged in active practice over a period of twenty-five years. Notable examples of his work include the Planters' Hotel; Rialto Building; Public Library; Municipal Court Building; National Bank of Commerce, Broadway and Olive Streets; Liggett & Meyer's Office block and Tobacco Factory, largest in the world at that time; the Kinnard Building, and a number of Club Houses. Mr. Taylor also served as Director-General on erection of buildings at the 1903 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis, and was frequently called upon to prepare plans for buildings elsewhere in Missouri, and in Texas.
